public class ListChildrenRequest : AmazonOrganizationsRequest

The ListChildrenRequest type exposes the following members


Public Method ListChildrenRequest()


Public Property ChildType Amazon.Organizations.ChildType

Gets and sets the property ChildType.

Filters the output to include only the specified child type.

Public Property MaxResults System.Int32

Gets and sets the property MaxResults.

(Optional) Use this to limit the number of results you want included in the response. If you do not include this parameter, it defaults to a value that is specific to the operation. If additional items exist beyond the maximum you specify, the NextToken response element is present and has a value (is not null). Include that value as the NextToken request parameter in the next call to the operation to get the next part of the results. Note that Organizations might return fewer results than the maximum even when there are more results available. You should check NextToken after every operation to ensure that you receive all of the results.

Public Property NextToken System.String

Gets and sets the property NextToken.

Use this parameter if you receive a NextToken response in a previous request that indicates that there is more output available. Set it to the value of the previous call's NextToken response to indicate where the output should continue from.

Public Property ParentId System.String

Gets and sets the property ParentId.

The unique identifier (ID) for the parent root or OU whose children you want to list.

The regex pattern for a parent ID string requires one of the following:

  • Root: a string that begins with "r-" followed by from 4 to 32 lower-case letters or digits.

  • Organizational unit (OU): a string that begins with "ou-" followed by from 4 to 32 lower-case letters or digits (the ID of the root that the OU is in) followed by a second "-" dash and from 8 to 32 additional lower-case letters or digits.


The following example shows how to request a list of the child OUs in a parent root or OU:/n/n

To retrieve a list of all of the child accounts and OUs in a parent root or OU

var response = client.ListChildren(new ListChildrenRequest 
    ParentId = "ou-examplerootid111-exampleouid111"

List children = response.Children;
